Sewer Hose Storage

I have a Surveyor SV-264 with 2 sewer outlets... Being the thinker that I am...... I bought 2 new 15' hoses and a Y adaptor. I used this for the past 3 days and it worked great... but now, where to store this is my question. I have the factory hose in the bumper but the new fittings won't go in there. I am thinking of adding a big piece of PVC pipe to the bumper but I am not sure where to attach it... or how... Any suggestions?

Thanks...

Do both ends of your bumper open?

If so then a 5/16 bolt, and two fender washers and a nylon lock nut for each end.
Drill the holes and bolt it together.

I tried to put one on the bumper but the spare wheel carrier got in the way so I put it across the fronton top of the frame and just used two large tie wraps, worked great.

I know your post is about a month old but I thought I would throw in my 2 cents worth. I had the same problem with my slightly used 2006 Surveyor I purchased last year but I couldn't attach anything to the rear bumper due to my spare tire mount so I went to Lowes and purchased the largest square vinyl fence post they carried which was 5" x 5". The length was 96" so I cut it to fit just rear of my dual axles and run width wise but not so much that it would pass the edge of the camper. I used some black spray paint made for plastic and applied several coats prior to mounting, mounted it with L brackets from the two I-Beams underneath using self threading screws which I also painted black. I used the fence post caps on each end and to aid in removing the hose I purchased a piece of vinyl gutter for the hose to lay in that fit comfortably inside the post and cut it to fit from end to end of the square tube so if the hose has shifted just out of reach from the end I can just pull on the gutter and easily retrieve the hose. It's been working like a charm ever since!

Thanks for all the replies... I like the vinyl fencepost idea... but will probably put it across the front of the frame because I'm getting old. I won't have to get down so far that way...

I have a 5" vinyl fence post attached to the bottom of our 5er near one of the sewer connections. I have it attached with beam clamps and 1/4" threaded rod. It holds my 15' sewer hose and all of the connections needed to connect to the connection at the CG.

Not sure of your truck bed length, but you can always cut them to fit. My vinyl post/sewer hose holders ride in the bed of the truck (8') quite perfectly. There's NO bending whatsoever getting them out.

I keep telling myself that I'm going to mount them and just haven't gotten around to it. Throwing them into the back of the truck is just so easy.

I can understand! My truck bed gets used quite a bit depending on the trip! Here was just prior to 3 weeks at the beach...
